He wears big and beautiful dresses. She is a person with a lot of faith in god and naïve. Cecile de Volanges: She is a young woman. She’s short, slim and with big and green eyes. She wears beautiful dresses. She’s naïve person because she hasn’t experience.

The living room of the century XVIII was the meeting place of the nobility, was wide rooms with high windows and big mirrors.The living room was highly decorated, there was sofas, tables, vases, paintings with golden frames,crystal lamps,etc.


4- Do you think that they are genuine people? What do Mme de Merteuil and the Viscount of Valmont use to dress up in front of the people? Which physical or material elements do they use to build their social identity?

Yes, I think that there are genuine people. Madame Merteuil and Viscount of Valmont use to build their social identity the white makeover and elegant clothes.

5-

In the film you can find people who aren’t what they are supposed to be. The society of that age was based on rules, conventions and traditions which stopped people from being what they really were. What are the objectives that each character wants to meet? What means do they use to get those objectives? Are they really happy? The marchioness Merteuil : She want turn in a tutor(she want direct the life of the others people) she use the lie to get her objectives, she wasn’t a happy person. Cécile de Volanges: Her objective is be happy with the person that she love (Danceny), she has tutors and she isn’t use her liberty to be happy. The viscount Valmont: His objective is practice sex with all the girls than he want without take into account their feelings, he use the lie to get her objectives too, he wasn’t happy.

6Quina dona de les que hi apareixen a la pel·lícula et sembla més moderna, més atrevida, més d’acord a l’esperit del Segle de les Llums reflectit a l’expressió Sapere aude? Mme de Merteuil, Mme de Tourvel, Cécile de Volanges, sa mare…? Justifica la teua resposta.

Pensem que la més atrevida, la que més s’apropia a l’expressió Sapere aude és Madame de Merteuil, perquè sap actuar sense deixar-se portar per les convencions de l’època, és a dir, les normes estipulades per la societat.

7-

Diríeu que Mme de Tourvel és una persona “major d’edat” d’acord a l’ètica de Kant? Hi ha algun canvi en aquesta situació al llarg de la pel·lícula? Justifica detingudament la teua resposta utilitzant els teus coneixements. Segons l’ètica de Kant Mme de Tourvel no és una persona “ major d’edat “ ja que les convencions socials i l’esglesia regeixen la seua vida, al llarg de la pel·licula Mme de Tourvel intenta desfer-se d’aquestos tutors però al estar tan integrada en la seua vida, al fallar en el camí de la seua llibertat torna a d’ells.


8- La pel•lícula és una crítica a la moral i els costums de l’aristocràcia durant el segle XVIII. Elabora tú aquesta crítica. Un element molt important és l’escena final de Mme de Merteuil, el desenllaç de Valmont, etc. Una costum molt comú del’aristocràcia és que es mostren d’una manera diferent a la que actuen, així la societat té una idea equivocada de com són. Comportant-se d’aquesta manera acaben enganyant-se a ells mateixos també, tant com a perdre la consciència del que volen realment, i fins que no perden el que realment els importa no es donen compte d’aquest fet.
